@PB we got extremely lucky it was low season.  I would guess there were only 400 people on the entire grounds of Angkor Wat and less than a dozen at the Banyon temple.

@GravitySucks  Did you go up in the hot air balloon?

No, that was a group tour and I didn’t want to hassle with riding in a van or bus with a bunch of other people I didn’t know.  I splurged. We flew from Bangkok to Siem Reap and rented a van, driver and guide for 3 days for 7800 baht. They picked us from the airport and took care of everything for 3 days and then dropped us back off at the airport.
Are we having fun yet?

Sounds great!  One time I rode in a bus with people I didn't know well in another country, and the driver took us to the middle of nowhere on purpose to extort double the money out of us.  I guess that could happen in any case, but it was worse because I worried the people with me who had hired the guy didn't use a reputable service, so I worried I was with stupid people.  And it turned out, I was.  They didn't tell us our destination had no running water.

Moments in Nature

Today, I noticed that Boris (the massive red spider in my yard) had a web up near a wasp's nest. I took Boris and some of his web down with a rake and put him to a more profitable location. The last thing I wanted to happen was a wasp to kill Boris.


Eh, nevermind...

You softie! I save spiders, lizards, caterpillars etc. And of course all the "cute" critters too. Even the hornworms that invaded and devastated my tomato plants. I relocated them out to a nearby, but not too close field. They turn into huge beautiful moths

They look pretty as a "worm" too.  I have tried tomatoes for a few years to consistently pitiful results.  A friend said I live too close to the ocean to really be successful...  Any thoughts?

Why is it when driving down the road with 12 car lengths behind me and one car length ahead of me a car will inevitably come zooming up beside me and cut in ahead of me? Are people in that much of a hurry?

Is this a modern version of Mrs Thompson's game? 
1. Because they are inconsiderate
2. Yes. For no good reason

3.  Because you passed them 20 minutes earlier when they were reading their text messages and doing 50 on the freeway.

Not many have the asses to pull off the shorts they wear nowadays.
I don't want to see their floppy ass meat hanging out like some puss infested clear plastic bag of cottage cheese.
